Normally during the academic course the reception is opened from Monday to Friday, but September 2nd and 3rd (Saturday and Sunday) will exceptionally be opened from 9am to 6pm.
The regular opening hours from Monday to Friday are from 8am to 8pm, but if you arrive later to sign your contract, you will be able to do it.
You will need:
- Your passport or Id.
- Pay a second deposit (if you needed a Visa while reserving you may have already paid it).
- A Spanish bank account. We know you haven’t one yet, do not worry, you will be able to open one in one of the following banks we have at the UAB Campus:
La Caixa (Caixabank), at the Rectorate Building of the University
Caixa Catalunya (Catalunya Caixa), at the Plaça Cívica.
Banco Santander (Central Hispano), at the Plaça Cívica.
It is better to open your account in one bank inside the Campus, so they know you are resident in Vila Universitaria and showing the accommodation contract (you will receive it by e-mail once you sign it) and your Id you will be able to open it with no extra costs.
It is compulsory to open this account, unless you pay the whole stay at your arrival.
Once you have your contract signed, you need to pick up your key and meet your block representative!
The firsts days of September you will find them outside the reception giving the keys and doing the apartment revisions. After that, you can contact them by Facebook group of your building or just knocking their apartment door.
This only for those living in Vila1, Vila2 representative place is still vacant, so if you want to do this job, just contact us!
